A little wander down the coast: Part 1

Over winter break the kids and I did a little wander down the coast for a few days. Our first stop was a town we’ve often headed to for a short break: Pismo Beach.

To mark the last day of the year, we decided to do something none of us have done before: Ride ATVs on the beach at Oceano Dunes.

Post dune-riding, we stopped for lunch. Either the food at Old Juan’s Cantina is fantastic, or we were ravenous. Or both.

The New Year started with a late breakfast. That diagram in the bottom of the page is an explanation for why we have seasons. Drawing it made me think of how much clearer things would’ve been for me at school if more teaching were visual.

Wandering aimlessly around Pismo, I sketched these guys fishing on the pier. Catching fish doesn’t seem to be the focus of this activity. Hanging out in the winter sun, watching the waves and surfers, that’s what it’s all about.

More from Pismo and the rest of the trip coming up next.

    That’s probably the clearest explanation of seasons I’ve ever seen/read! Thanks!
